Short description of the project:

The project aims to increase the technology readiness level (TRL) of the base technology related to preparing innovative photocuring resins for dedicated 3D bioprinting processes of spatial materials. In this respect, the developed formulations play the role of biotopes for the processes of three-dimensional manufacturing scaffolds, so-called scaffolds, using a 3D bio-printer. In the manufacturing process of such objects, materials that guarantee bio-compliance and bio-compatibility are used, while photoinitiators developed within the project should show a lack of cytotoxicity and be safe for organisms. In the future, the developed formulations of bio-inks for 3D printers can be used by pharmaceutical companies to research cell culture, toxicology, drug screening and regenerative medicine.
